The Bachelor of Criminology Bachelor of Forensic Science prepares students to respond to the changing nature of crime in the 21st century by addressing the realities of crime and forensics in an increasingly digital and transnational age. Students develop a skill set that combines enabling sciences, social sciences, in-depth understandings of forensic science and crime in the context of their chosen specialisations in both components of the course.
This course provides students with a thorough understanding of how forensic science and criminology can solve and prevent crime. This is a hands-on course using world-class facilities that are modelled on operational laboratories.
This degree combines theory and practice to address industry needs for an applied approach to criminology and specifically addresses the increasingly digital and transnational dimensions of crime. Students work with data sets, tools, problems and cases used in industry and contributed by UTS partners to be work-ready.
In the Bachelor of Criminology students are able to select from a standard major or an extended major:
Standard majors - Forensics, Data Analytics, or Justice and Legal Studies.
